“Do not put your trust in princes” (Psalms 146:3 NKJV).


Those who put their trust in political leaders and parties will always be disappointed because they are led by mere men. Only the One who can change the human heart can change the human condition. This proverb, along with today’s Old Testament reading from 2 Kings, both proclaim and illustrate this fact. Until King Jesus comes to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords in every human heart, there will be no peace.
PRAYER: Dear Father, we long for the Day of Christ’s return. Yet, until then, we proclaim His gospel and proclaim Him as Lord over all. We are as foreigners in a foreign land, awaiting for Your Kingdom to come. Strengthen us as Your royal ambassadors until our time has ended and you call us home. In Jesus’ name, amen.
